Fury As United Nations Employment Opportunity Job Post Places Jerusalem In The ‘State Of Palestine’

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon called on Under-Secretary-General Grete Faremo, the UNOPS executive director, to remove the job posting from the site and institute immediate reforms. “It is unacceptable for UN resources to be used for anti-Israel activity and to attempt to change the facts on the ground,” Danon stated.  “UNOPS must conduct a complete overhaul of its operating procedures to ensure that such inappropriate behavior not occur again.”

Aside from several postings for employment opportunities in “Occupied Palestinian territory,” referring to locations in Judea and Samaria, most recently the UN posted an opening for a position in “Jerusalem, Palestine.”

The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) posted a position on its website (see below) seeking a project manager for its Jerusalem office.  The “duty station” designated for the job was “Jerusalem, Palestine (State of).”

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon called on Under-Secretary-General Grete Faremo, the UNOPS executive director, to remove the job posting from the site and institute immediate reforms.

“It is unacceptable for UN resources to be used for anti-Israel activity and to attempt to change the facts on the ground,” Danon stated.  “UNOPS must conduct a complete overhaul of its operating procedures to ensure that such inappropriate behavior not occur again.”

Indeed, less than three weeks ago, Israelis and Jews around the world celebrated 50 years since the reunification of Jerusalem during the Six Day War.

A few weeks earlier, just ahead of Israel’s 69th Independence Day, the executive board of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) voted on a new anti-Israel resolution denying Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem and referring to the State of Israel as the “occupying power.”

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, who just concluded a visit to the Jewish state, has vowed to influence a change at the UN regarding its ongoing bias against Israel.

“If there’s anything I have no patience for it is bullies, and the UN was being such a bully to Israel,” she told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem last week. “It is a new day for Israel in the United Nations,” Haley stated. source
